Aussi facile qu'une clef USB dans son ordinateur

Pros

La facilité d'installation et le concept de disque dur entièrement virtuel rend l'utilisation vraiment légère et conforme à nos attentes.

Cons

Certaines erreurs d'accès aux dossiers qui prennent parfois des mois à être résolus par le service client de pCloud.

Reasons for Choosing pCloud

Le rapport qualité-prix est très bon. Et la possibilité d'avoir ses serveurs uniquement en Europe est une qualité intéressante.

pCloud Review

My overall experience with pCloud is great so far. I have no problem using it. Although sometime the app do not sync everything to the cloud when I uploaded the file through the app. This can be improve but and the company should also think about implementing two factors authentication which give user a peace of mine about their data.

Pros

I like this software because it is very easy to use and allows you to upload and download file straight from the application without having to login to the dashboard using a browser. The best part of about this software is that it does not take up any space on the local hard drive once the files are copied and sync to the cloud. Even if the user downloaded the application and sync the file from the cloud to their local computer, the files do not take up space on the local machine. Also the service is great because the user only have to pay one time fee and do not have to worry about being charge every month or every year.

Cons

The only thing about pCloud that I didn't like is, it does not have two factor authentication. So if someone knows your password, they can potentially steal all of your data. While other service like Dropbox have two factor authentication which makes its harder for hackers to steal the data.

Reasons for Switching to pCloud

I made a switch because I can easily pay just one payment and have two terabyte worth of space to use for life without any other fees. While other cloud storage solution do not have that option.

Easy to use, quite easy to configure, great to use on several systems.

Having tried several cloud systems before for uploading my stuff, I found pCloud very easy and comfortable to use and will use it for the time to come or until it folds - which I hope, never happens. By the way, I am a free user, having granted the 50 GB during an introduction campaign of the service, I also like the social media backup feature. With Facebook, for instance, I was able to immediately connect it to pCloud without any issues and is backing up some or all of my albums rather smoothly. It even kept the folder structure intact by categorizing all my Facebook images in their respective directories, PCloud is a cloud storage program for all those who are looking for a comprehensive storing solution. The easy-to-use interface provides the user with all the brilliant multi-tasking features for business as well as personal use. PCloud headquarters are in Switzerland, and the advance thinking team of pCloud will provide best solutions according to the growing market, All in all, free cloud storage can certainly benefit the casual user. Those who need to store large files and perform serious backups should consider the paid route.

Pros

Option to enable automatic photo/video uploads from the mobile app, Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux and Free!Up to 20 GB of free storage, Can search through all your files from the website and mobile app, Easy to use, just does not do the job. Concept and format are good, operationally flat out bad. Look elsewhere, Option to enable automatic photo/video uploads from the mobile app.

Cons

Limited support options, Encryption costs extra, The synchronization can be very slow on the computer and it happened that my PC froze because of the sync, Can not password protect shared files/folders, RANDOM Speeds on download, Hard to sometimes get hold of Customer Services on the phone but they respond to emails straight away.

Hello Nikhil, than you very much for the time taken to post you review for our product. We really value your oppenion and we will do our best to improve the service in order to even better fit your needs. There are few remarks, which I would like to outline. The encryption of the files is not at an additional cost. Each file, uloaded to pCloud is getting encrypted on the server side. The cost comes to those who would like a millitary level of file security. pCloud Crypto offers client side encryption, which means the files are uploaded to our servers already encrypted and the keys are stored on your end. The second thing I would like to outline, is that we do offer the option to password protect your shares. When you create a download link for a file or folder, you have the option to set a password for it. More information can always be found in our FAQ section: https://www.pcloud.com/help/general-help-center/

Absolutely amazing

Simple and easy to use. Worth every penny. And always has discounts on.

Pros

It is easy to use since you install it and it is a virtual drive that syncs instantly to the cloud which I love.

Cons

Nothing apart from the fact I got signed out a few times but that isn't really an issue so it's still a 10/10 from me.

Reasons for Switching to pCloud

Needed something that synced quicker

A friend in the cloud

My experience has been wonderful, I have had no problems, I have been able to recover some lost or deleted files from my computer thanks to the fact that it keeps a file history for 30 days where it allows recovering from individual files to complete folders.

Pros

For more than 4 years I have kept my files synchronized with pCloud, I have never had problems, I have kept the files synchronized on 3 computers and backed up securely at the moment. pCloud is like an hard drive when you installing it is added as one more drive in my computer.

Cons

It does not integrate an online file editor as well as Google Drive that allows you to edit Word files online without opening them on the computer.

Reasons for Switching to pCloud

I had problems with software that keeps files in sync between my computer and the cloud
